I LOVE GEOMETRY! Seriously, I walked out of college geometry with a 100%. The life application skill that I retained is an ability to rearrange furniture in unbelievable ways. Nice, right? :-)lol
This year, thanks to our book study, I hope to incorporate geometry work stations into our math time. The workbook we are using touches briefly on dividing 2D shapes into equal pieces. Of course, there are SO many more geometrical concepts!
To share, I found a great online source for mandala coloring pages. This selection includes many "easy" versions with identifiable shapes. Kindergartners are always amazed at the variety of designs, created simply by choosing different colors. Mandalas provide a fun way to discuss shapes and patterns. Because I am also the art teacher for the K-1st grade combined, I add these pages to the "I'm done!" box.
Coloring a pattern can be very relaxing!
